Guess what? I put together another very cool look, with the last of my FaMESHed gifts. Pyjamas, socks, earrings and necklace are free from the event. I promise, in a few days I’ll also show you things one actually has to pay for. In the meantime, let me enjoy the beauty of my l$ balance not dropping down for a couple more hours.
The very cute hair, Jacica, is the latest group gift from Truth. Seriously, if you haven’t joined yet, what are you waiting for? The monthly gift is always a complete fat pack, with styling HUD and all the options. The value is incredible, and all for just a one time fee of 350l$, barely the price of one colour pack!
So, last Monday, I spent the best part of my day setting up for Fantasy Faire. I have OCD so you can imagine how having everything in the exact right spot is vital to me. Turns out, Alia Baroque’s gorgeous sim, Aetherea, suffers from an illness that the Linden are unable to identify (they find it “interesting”) and the sim isn’t working properly. On Saturday we were asked to please set up out most important vendors on a mini Aetherea, and this morning, I woke up to a notecard telling me to copy my whole set up to a mirror sim. I had a complete meltdown. Due to ONE item that appeared to be no copy (and that I only identified when I was almost done), I had to move my items pretty much one by one over to the new sim. I have to say, if it weren’t for a fellow fairelander and Alia’s impeccable work, I would have lost it. Anyway, now that I’m done, I can finally relax with a blog post.

So, Blueberry has a new gorgeous piece of clothing out. It’s called Liza, and it’s supposed to be a dress. However, my toon being very modest, there’s no way she would ever wear it as one. I therefore had to find her something to wear under it. I tried all my jeans, and leggings, and nothing fit. It made me sad. Then someone suggested Izzie’s, and sure enough, I found exactly what I needed.
You know these Ingenue flats I found at Shoetopia, and was telling you about in my previous post? Turns out the “Cotton” colour can be tinted, so now I have, in addition to the fatpack, a billion possibilities to match my outfits!
I love, love love my Simone head. It was my first Bento head and so far I haven’t found one that I can shape to look like what I want, as much as this one. But I find the poses a bit mean looking, for the most part. So when I found that new HUD from Happy Dispatch, I was eager to try it. You can animate the eyes and mouth separately, and adjust the amount of animation you want, like there’s that one smile that makes me look like I’m about to eat you, but if I tone it down, it’s lovely! You should go try it.

Hello and happy Monday! I’ve done some shopping today and I figured I might as well show you! As a blogger, I am lucky to have early access to Shoetopia, and I found some gorgeous things, starting with those flats from Ingenue. They are perfection. I had to fatpack them as I couldn’t decide on a colour… They are so good everyone is getting them, it seems Gidge just posted about them too! Honestly, 12 colours for 1100l$, that’s not even 100l$ a pair, it’s a steal! Shoetopia opens today at noon SLT.
FaMESHed just opened and is, as usual, completely full, but if you manage to pop there, be sure to try the lovely hair Lamb just released there. It’s so cute, and comes with a styling HUD that allows you to hide or show the built-in hairbase and fiddle with the bangs. It’s also unrigged so if your head is weirdly shaped like mine, you can move it around and make it work!
Every week-end, Maxi Gossamer has some styles out for a discounted price, and this week she has, among other things, that very cool sun necklace. It comes in both long and short size, and you can change it from silver to gold.
In the world of Second Life, people tend to buy clothes at events, wear them once, then change into their next purchase and never look at that first outfit again, even though they were drooling over it when it first came out. For some reason I don’t really like to do that. Of course, I do buy things at events, when they’re brand new and everyone is raving over them too. But I like to shop in stores, and dig out old things in my inventory. When they are good, they don’t get out of style, and it’s the case with that top from Cold Logic. It predates mesh bodies and I’m wearing a size S on my Maitreya Lara. I had to alpha my elbows and part of my back, but honestly, autohide today would do the same.
Oh hai! I’m Rose! And I’ll be mostly procrastinating, but sometimes blogging here too… I’m not a girl of many words, at least not when blogging, so mostly you’ll get pictures, and credits. Most of what I blog is not new, I just put together stuff I like and show you. I hope you like.

I spent about 20 minutes editing photos after shooting in my home studio, only to realize when I was done that I had uploaded the originals to FLICKR. In a moment of frustration I decided to make lemonade and declare this intentional and show off how lovely raw photos can be. WELL THEY CAN BE. Continue reading →
